100k for this? And yeah I know I’m months late on it

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

So this Roaring 20s shitefest. Wow. I remember reading about it on Shane’s blog and I note the amount of comments left about it. Not popular at all was it? Good.

But this cost the taxpayer 100k? Jesus H. The two lads behind it seem quite cocky about it in this Indo article before it got released. Nice that RTE funds this lark to give the lads the experience they need to come back for more money and another go.

They must have known it was only a matter of time that these lads would be kings of comedy after seeing this “Irish Seinfeld” video they made. Make sure you’ve peed and are sitting down when you watch this. Those with heart conditions may need to stay away. Those that lost their sense of humour after toxic viruses may be cured after watching this:

Hmmm... not what I wanted.

Heading back from Q&A last night, walking over O’Connell bridge and I see a crowd gathering around the steps going down into the river. A Garda was heading down them while shouting to a guy in the river. Seems the guy decided he’d take a swim and the Garda was suggeting he change his mind. As this was happening a crowd gathered on the bridge cheering him on.

And fair play to the Garda, he got the guy out of the water without having to climb in. He brought him back up and they stuck a blanket around him. Then the firebrigade arrived:


Shortly afterwards came the ambulances. Two I guess in case someone else ended up in the Liffey:

Not the biggest fans of Gardai at times but rather them then me when they have to work night weekend shifts with so many nasty. violent and messy drunks all over the streets.

All the recent RickRolling has gotten Curly K nostalgic. Well it could be called pissed off with me but we’ll collectively delude ourselves and call it nostalgic.

13 year old kid wearing a bullet-proof vest caught joyriding in Limerick. If he can drive and dodge bullets then he can join the army. Draft him.

Elly is celebrating her birthday and having a send-off party for Bertie. Do go along.

So they want to honour George Bush by naming a public facility after him. A sewerage treatment plant?

Two Tribes: Jazz Biscuit Versus The Chancer

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

Pop quiz hotshots, is it Jazz Biscuit or is it The Chancer? Forget Daddy or Chips, this is more important. Channel Highlander and all of that. Queuka bar lat.

Chancer V Soggy biscuit
The Chancer rose from the asses, er ashes of Blogorrah and started to reclaim the tiara of best pop/goss/stop on the web and they’re not dead yet but new kid on the block JazzBiscuit (known as soggy to some) has hit the ground punning and is finding all sorts of wonderful stuff. But you gotta decide now because Star Trek science says only one can exist in this reality. Choose!

Play this vid before you decide.

Note to Del and JB: none of this diplomatic shit of respecting each other and all of that. Broken bottles of buckfast and throats a.

Bertie Ahern is resigning – Tuesday 6th of May he’s gone!

And he’s going…

More soon.

Watch Live.

And now them’s fighting words. Live TV stream down. Listening to Radio1 instead. “One truth: Never personal interests ahead of public good”
Never received a corrupt payment. Some aspects of my finances are unusual.
I know in my heart of hearts I did nothing wrong.
Best interest of party and country to set out time of leaving.
I’ve decided on my own volition to up date of departure.
Tuesday May 6th he’s gone.

The Indo headline today kind was WRONG:
